Onedismus (on-e-dis’-mus): Reproaching someone for being impious or ungrateful.
I can’t believe it! I gave you $500,000,000.00 to get a start in life and you don’t even thank me. It’s like you think you were entitled, just like all those freeloaders on Social Security. I should’ve sold you when you were born. Some moron offered us $50.00, but your mother didn’t think it was enough. We were asking for $75.00 and your mother was adamant. That’s too bad, but now I’m stuck with you. Just go do something with the money, like buy run down shit holes and rent them to people you can push around, like old ladies, cripples, and illegal aliens.
Now, get the hell out of here and do something cruel with your life you little S.O.B. Hey! Maybe some day you’ll be President. Ha ha ha!
